Last night I attended a reading of Hilda, an astonishing play by Marie Nduaye the French playwright. I would call Hilda a modern adaptation of The Maids by Jean Genet. Basically a different take on the real incident happened in France in 1933 as the result of the exploitation of the workers. Watching the play at Alliance Francaise de Chicago, as the second reading of The International Voices Project was an extraordinary experience which I will write about it soon.
Watch a clip from The Maid directed by Christopher Miles an adaptation of Jean Genet's play.
